Yet another report has emerged claiming that AC Milan winger Rafael Leao is attracting the interest of Barcelona ahead of the summer transfer window.
As reported by the Mundo Deportivo (via SempreMilan.it), Barcelona want to bolster their attack when the window reopens and they have drawn up a list of four targets including Romelu Lukaku and Timo Werner of Chelsea, Patrik Schick of Leverkusen and Rafael Leao.
The Portugal international has 8 goals and 4 assists in 24 league games so far this season and 11 goals overall, and he is considered a cornerstone of both present and future of Milan. His valuation is no less than €50m for this reason and that is the only figure that would make Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara sit at the negotiating table.
However, the club know that losing Leao at such a vital time in the project would be far from ideal and that is why there are rumours of a renewal and a pay rise for the former Lille man.
